is this the beginning of the end?
A bright future awaits
>desktop app is a glorified webpage that requires signal to be open on your phone to work
the mobile app is great but without a great companion desktop app it's all for naught
and thus the search for something better than iMessage continues...
Still under heavy development, and I'm not very fond of using development versions. But please continue using it, reporting bugs, and maybe I'll be using it when it's stable thanks to brave test subjects like you.
I'm using antox daily, at the moment the audio test build. It works great, just drains battery as shit. And the data drain is hard.
But making calls and sending Text messages and pictures is working great.
Mainly i use conversations as an alternative to Whatsapp. In conversations i have everything i need.
FUCK OFF NORMIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES
Anon claims tox devs have dismissed findings of exploits, which means they must have been reported.
I'm not sure what 'unreported rapes' have to do with this but I find it very inappropriate of you to mention it.
>whatsapp has a nice black/dark theme for window phone but only blinding white for others.
Turning on that blinding light during the night...
Is actually fine. You're just overreacting.
>proprietary software a hard dependency
>with full system privileges
>of a program supposed to provide secure communication
Literally impossible to be sure it doesn't scrape your communication to Google and beyond if you're using the nonfree malware on your device.
Use microG as that other anon said, then it works fine AND you have assurance of exactly what it does and does not send through Google's, or anyone else's, servers.
Iirc yes. But I don't care desu. At least the texts work.
I was surprised to find out that they
a) don't offer a download on their website for the apk, its just the link to apple and android app store
b) that it actually depends on gapps. I didn't expect that desu. But that's (like you said) because if their call feature.
Also requires your phone number to sign up. Threema, while proprietary, can be used without using your phonenumber.
